Description Black and white photograph of a crowd of African American students running during the Chattanooga sit-ins of February 1960.

This photo was likely taken on the fourth day. The students ran away from where they were once protesting (likely because law enforcement began using fire hoses to disperse the crowd). They were in front of Manhattan & Arrow Shirts on Georgia Avenue.

The name "Wilson" is written on the back referring to the photographer, likely Delmont Wilson of the Chattanooga News-Free Press.
